This book is the one that is leading me down the proverbial rabbit hole of reading with rigor. And to tell you the truth, it wasn’t even my genius that started it all! It was my mother’s.
My mom lives about 30 miles away from us. When we all started having kids, she had the idea to stock our childrens’ libraries, and did it. She spent a LOT of time in thrift stores, book stores, and online finding classic childrens’ books and books from various lists to read to/with your children before Kindergarten. Many of those books she had read with us as kids, so she’s familiar with them.
On one of the days that my mom decided to come visit my kids, she brought a blanket, some picnic treats, and some stuffed animals, and the book “The Teddy Bear’s Picnic” by Jimmy Kennedy and read it with my children. They got to experience the book in a different way. I couldn’t believe i had never thought of doing that before! I’m really grateful that my mom opened my eyes to a new way of spending time with my kids.
Watch for more ideas coming your way through all of the books we have!
